Rob Zombie’s nonsensical album titles are pretty much always meant to confuse and confound. Even White Zombie’s breakthrough album was called La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One (there was never a second volume). His last one was Venemous Rat Regeneration Vendor, and the one before that, was Hellbilly Deluxe 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool. None of those roll off the tongue, do they? At least he’s consistent, as Zombie has just announced that his forthcoming album will be titled The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. The new album will be released on April 29th.
The album, his sixth, will be released on UMe/T-Boy, and the song titles are just as outlandish as the album title. Take, for example, “Well, Everybody’s Fucking In A U.F.O.” There are also songs called “Satanic Cyanide! The Killer Rocks On” and “A Hearse Overturns With the Coffin Bursting Open.” This could be one of the heavier albums out there, as noted metal producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris produced it. Zombie, of course, is pumped about the new album:
“I can easily say this is my favorite album yet… no joke. Yeah I know every fucking asshole says that. But it is seriously our heaviest most fucked up musical monster to date. One song entitled ‘Well, Everybody’s Fucking In a U.F.O.’ is sure to be an instant Zombie classic! Not since Hellbilly Deluxe have I spent this long putting an album together. It was worth it.”
He’s definitely capitalizing on the U.F.O. song, as the album preorder, which went live today, is available at fuckinginaufo.com. And having successfully crowd-funded his most recent film, 31, he’s also offering some premiums to those that preorder the new album, whose title is too unwieldy for us to repeat. ““This time I’m not just putting out a new record like everyone else- I’m offering it directly from me to YOU along with a ton of other limited edition, exclusive badass shit like new album merch, posters and the chance for you to be in THE ELECTRIC WARLOCK ACID WITCH SATANIC ORGY CELEBRATION DISPENSER MOVIE!,” he states in the press release. So guess he’s got another movie coming out then… If you have dreams of being discovered by being an extra in a Rob Zombie movie, it’ll only run you $500, but there are plenty more affordable perks you can get from buying the album.
